Winnie the Pooh and his friends had more opinions on social media and communications technology than I could capture in just one post. Here are more of their thoughts penned by A. A. Milne:
“It isn’t mine. Then again, few things are.”
“Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
“A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference.”
More on Retweets
“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon”
“I wonder what Piglet is doing,” thought Pooh.
“I wish I were there to be doing it, too.”
“Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”
On Staying Positive While Building a Following
“I might have known,” said Eeyore. “After all, one can’t complain. I have my friends. Somebody spoke to me only yesterday. And was it last week or the week before that Rabbit bumped into me and said ‘Bother!’. The Social Round. Always something going on.”
On Choosing Your Platform
“I knew when I met you an adventure was going to happen.”
“Pay attention to where you are going because without meaning you might get nowhere.”
“It’s your fault, Eeyore. You’ve never been to see any of us. You just stay here in this one corner of the Forest waiting for the others to come to you. Why don’t you go to THEM sometimes?”
Looking forward to making another list from an 80s cartoon. Any suggestions?
